My wife had the procedure 13 months ago. She had moderate improvements in balance and major improvements in fatigue. The biggest improvement was with her recurring neuropathic pain in her left arm. This sever pain has stumped numerous neurologists and pain specialists over the past 5 years. She had tried dozens of different types of drugs as well as TENS, acupuncture, etc. After the angioplasty the pain disappeared for 2 months, which was fantastic. Needless to say, we were very disappointed when it returned.
After the 2 months of improvements my courageous wife has continued to decline at the same rate that she did before the procedure. The only improvement that has remained is that she still does not suffer from fatigue like she did before the procedure. We are thankful for that.
We are happy that we did it. We are tempted to do it again but there has been no advancements in the ability to make the improvements last. I know the procedure can produce wonderful results but they seldom last more than a few months. Then there are the few people that seem to retain their improvements. That gives us hope.
There's so much more needed...physical therapy, nutritional counseling, support and follow up.
Good to hear Jeff is doing so well. Has he also been monitored (ie showed ) his neurologist?cheerleader wrote:That would also be Jeff, now almost 3 years after venoplasty, and 4 years since starting the Endothelial Health program. He's working full days, traveling, biking, hiking, no MS progression or new lesions, reversal of gray matter atrophy, no more heat intolerence, no more crippling fatigue, no more spasms, much better bladder. He sleeps well, dreams at night again, wakes up refreshed and in a better mood.
